When Splitface begins fleeing from Tracy in the middle of the movie, he is driving a black 1930s era automobile through a residential area. However, when the chase continues through the city, Splitface is driving a gray 1940s era automobile. When Splitface exits his automobile shortly thereafter, it is a black 1930s era automobile again and this is the car he drives for the rest of the picture. See more
